(Proverbs 4:6 KJV) Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.
Security that is not engaged is worthless. You can have the finest home alarm system that money will buy but if it is not activated, it is useless. Door locks don’t keep anyone out when they are not engaged.
Medicine that is not taken does not promote healing. Evidently a large number of people with diabetes do not take their medications. How much of the health crisis is because of lack of follow through.
Exercise machines are purchased and gather dust.
So? Wisdom is offered and delivered. Unless you grab hold, study and apply, it is useless to you. Do not “forsake” (5800a) the gift.
